Mid-Winter Getaway Offers Unique Architecture Tour By Bike

Madison, WI – – December 13, 2017 — Trek Travel captures the glamour of old and new-era Hollywood with the debut of its 2018 Palm Springs & Joshua Tree Bike Tour.

In addition to exploring the beauty of Joshua Tree National Park, guests will enjoy a private cycling tour of architecturally-significant Palm Springs homes, including former homes of Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, and the Kaufmann Desert House, a 70-year old masterwork of design and construction.

“This desert oasis is a perfect mid-winter destination,” says Trek Travel President Tania Burke, “with a unique opportunity to experience the high style of this retro town by bike.”

Guests will stay in an architecturally-significant setting as well, as they base from Korakia Pensione, a Moroccan villa originally named Dar Marroc that was built in 1924 and was the former hideaway of Scottish painter Gordon Coutts.

In addition to soaking up the midcentury modern elegance of Palm Springs, participants will have access to the region’s world-class natural resources.

Guests will visit a river in the desert at the Whitewater Preserve, take a hike on the Pacific Crest Trail, spend two full days in the stunning beauty of Joshua Tree National Park and marvel at towering palms and wildlife at a number of palm oases.

The five-day, four-night trip begins and ends in Palm Springs, CA and is priced from $2,999 per person. It is available January 21 – 25, January 28 – February 1, February 4 – 8, February 11 – 15 and February 18 – 22, 2018.
